Can anyone convert PRN to PDF?

I am wanting a Java solution (but will consider anything else) that will allow me to convert a PRN file to PDF.  Code example, please...

None of those solutions are what I'm needing.  I need some code and freeware that will convert a directory of PRNs to PDFs.

I've used all those before, and they do not convert the PRN files I'm using 100%.  They struggle with boxes and shading and end up putting garbage in its place.

I found a product called EscapeE from RedTitan that works, although there's no API and everything has to be called from command line.  

Thanks for your help.
